INVENTOR This-invention relates to hinges andparticularlyto what are known as 1'nv1s1ble I '1 STATES; PATENT I. JOBIEE 8085, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YOIBJL Be it known .that I, Josnrn Sees, a citizen of the United States, and residing at Brooklyn,Nm the county of Queens and State of ew York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements m Hmges,
of which the following is a s ecificatlon,
such as will enable those skills in the art to which; it appertains to make and use the same.
hinges for use in connection with doors and other swinging articles, and the inven tion described and claimed herein is an improvement on that described and claimed infill. S. Letters Patent #880,697, granted; March 3, 1 908, and the. object of this invention; is to provide a hin e'of the class specified the construction an operation of which is suchas to preventla door, when in a fl fi fi, position, from movin away fromi theframe or sulpport with w ich it is connected, or in t further object be' parts of the hinge so as to adapt the same --to: doors and frames of greater or lessthick- .nesses, andthe operation and construction hinge and showing the same in connectionwith a door frame and door, parts only, of said frame anddoor being shown and said parts being in section on the'line 1-1 of Fig. 2: Fi 2 a transverse section on the line 2--2 0 Fig. 1, and showing the door closed, and :F1g, 3 a view similar to Fig. 2 but showing the door open. 4
In the practice of my. invention I rovide two box-shaped hinge butts a, the aces of which are provided with end extensmns a and said .hingebutts and the end extogether centrally t e plane thereofa to increase the ra ills of the movement 0 the swinging movable a men.

1'0 all whem may concern: tensions a thereof are adapted to be seecured in the door frame and door'by means s own, andthe adjacent faces of said hinge butts are also open, as shown at 11* and.
said hinge butts are provided with back plates. a which do not extend to the adacent faces thereof, but terminate at a9,
and this construction forms openings a in the face plates of said hinge butts? which The hinge butts a are correspond with, but are of less transverse dimensions than the openings a. in the fronts of said hinge butts, as clearly shown in Fig. 2. I also provide two sets or series of swinging arms 6 one end member 6 of which is L-shaped in form and the other end member of which consists of a flat head I), and the arms 6 of the-separate sets are pivoted ereof by means ofa Bin 0 which has no connection with the inge butts a and the L-shaped ends I) of' one set of said arms extend mto one of the butts a while the L-shaped' ends of the. other set extend into the other butt, and the heads .6 of the separate sets of arms also extend the opposite butts a of the hinge, as clearly shown, and the head ends of said arms project beyond the L-shaped ends.
The back face plates 0. of the hl n e butts are provided with parallel ribs a. w ich correspond with thearms b and between which.
are pivoted links (Z, this connection being made 1 by means of pins 03 which pass through the ribs a and through, or have hearings in the end extensions a of the bodies of the hinge butts a and the links a? are connected with the heads 6- of the separate sets of arms 6 by pins d which do-not pass into the ends of the butts a, but are free to swin in said butts or the chambers therein in w ich the arms I) and links 02 are movable. The. outer ends of the ribs a. fit between the terminal" portions of the L-shaped ends I' b of the separate sets of arms I), and passed through the said terminal portions of the separate sets of the arms I) are provided are movable in grooves in ends of the bodies with inwardly directedhooks b and' these hooks "are movable between the 'l .--shaped ends I)" of said arms when the door is closed,-
as shown in Fig. 2, and when the door is open, as shown in Fig. 3, they engage pivot pins e.
' In the accompanying drawing the door frame is shown at f and the door at f, and
with the construction described, it Will be seen, that the door may. be swun throu h anarc'of 180 degrees. -It w1ll a o be 0 served that the ends of the-arms w1th which the heads I)" are connected are longer-than the other ends thereoff'or' project beyondf said butts. r 9 Although I have shown and described the fronts of the hinge -'-b1 1tts, a as open,- or provided with opemngs a, this is not an essential feature, and said fronts of said butts may be closed if the thickness of the vantages.
door frame and door is such as to permit of the necessary increase in the thlcknes of the hinge butts or the body portion thereof and other c anges 1n and modifications of the construction herein shown and described may be made, within the scope of the 8P, pended claims, without departing from the spirit of my invention or .sacrificmg 1ts ad- Having described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Let 1.
